Overview

About the property

Lovely tranquil home set among expansive gardens

Casa Oasis is tucked away amid expansive and lush Mexican landscaping. It is a 20 min flat walk to the downtown/Jardin area and quite close to the amazing Fabrica Aurora in San Miguel's Centro neighborhood. The original Santa Maria Hacienda has been thoughtfully incorporated into an ethereal garden setting for 13 condos and 6 custom homes. The old walls are burgeoning with a myriad of flowering vines providing a perfect backdrop for a modern yet traditional Mexican lifestyle.

The condo features 3 bedrooms with top quality bedding. The style is traditional Mexican but with many special features added for the comfort of our guests. In addition to the beautiful extensive compound gardens there is a lovely patio off the dining room and kitchen featuring a fireplace and a fountain.

The master bedroom is upstairs with its own terrace and a view of the countryside it features a new king size bed and flat screen TV as well as ample closet space. The 2nd queen bedroom is also upstairs with a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and the back terrace. The two upstairs bedrooms share a pretty bathroom featuring double sinks and a toilet and bath/shower in a separate room.

The living room has a gas fireplace and a soaring window that overlooks the common garden in the rear of the compound. It features plenty of seating and a large flat screen smart TV. Also on the ground level there is a separate office area, a dining room and a very well equipped kitchen. Another bedroom with a queen size bed and a private entrance is on the level. There is also a full bathroom with a typical boveda brick ceiling.

The entire house has just been renovated and a water purification system installed throughout the home.

About Mary Ann MacCartney

We are part time residents in Mexico and part time in Florida. We have fallen head over heals for San Miguel and spend as much time as possible enjoying the culture and climate.

Prior to retiring we were expats for 30+ years living in South America, Africa, Asia and finally Israel.

Mary Ann MacCartney purchased this condo in 2016

Why Mary Ann MacCartney chose Zona Centro

We searched for a home that was close to all the cultural attractions of San Miguel but still tranquil and quiet. Having plenty of space for guests and not having to worry about security made this home perfect. Off street parking was also a bonus as this can be at a premium in San Miguel

What makes this condo unique

My favorite aspect of this home are the tranquil gardens. The home is well appointed and very comfortable with WiFi, Smart Tv, and everything you could wish for in the kitchen. The location is not far from the Artisanal Market and very close to the galleries and restaurants of the Fabrica Aurora.

We stayed at this "garden oasis" for a month over Christmas, and were very pleased at our choice. Where to begin? Maybe with our initial communications with the owner, Mary Ann, who was inevitably quick to respond, cordial, and helpful. We were met on arrival at the locked gate by the property manager, Lucero, who was very pleasant and who quickly dealt with a few minor challenges we had during our stay--a broken pump, an additional set of keys, lack of propane one morning. She even brought her husband with her one day to explain how to work the DVD player. Then there's the location, which is, indeed, a bit of an oasis. The area itself is not particularly attractive, but the condo is set at the rear of beautiful gardens, probably one the quietest locations in central San Miguel, and only about a 20-minute walk to El Jardin in the centre of town. The condo itself is really comfortable and charming, with a real Mexican flavour reflected in the architecture and furnishings. The layout worked well for us as we were a couple with a friend, and then my daughter over Christmas. Our friend's main level bedroom and bath, tucked away through the kitchen, were very private. My husband and I used the spacious balcony bedroom upstairs, which opened onto the upstairs patio and the much-appreciated washer and drier. The king-size bed and the linens were outstanding. Across the hall, and separated by the bathroom, was another very nice bedroom, used by my daughter for the ten days she was with us. All the bedrooms had more than enough hanging and drawer storage. Downstairs, as you will see in the photos, was the attractive living/dining room, and leading to the kitchen, "the office," which proved to be extremely useful for keeping bits of pieces of information, handbags, etc. The kitchen itself was particularly well-equipped and functional. We were delighted that it came with all the basic condiments , which were much appreciated by us. Altho' there isn't any dishwasher, we didn't find this a problem. Both the living/dining area and the kitchen open onto a small patio. We had been warned not to stay anywhere without adequate heat as December/January can be cold at night. Happily, the propane heaters in this condo were excellent. We made great use of the DVD player as the owner has a terrific collection of classic DVDs. Another plus was the once-weekly maid, Marisol, who was incredibly cheery and efficient. A great place to stay--highly recommended!

Casa Oasis lives up to it's name!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a place to stay on my first visit to San Miguel, I hoped to find an accommodation that would be close enough to walk to all the action of the town center yet far enough away that we were able to relax and decompress while at home. I found all this and more at Casa Oasis. The casa is a located in a grassy court yard that is surrounded with beautiful plantings. It is quiet and safe. There is a locking gate enter/exit the beautiful complex. There is a full time gardener during the day, and a security guard at night. It was important to me to feel secure, as I was traveling with my teen age daughter and older parents. We were able to walk into town for dinner, and we always chose to walk home, rather than take a cab (which is very easy and inexpensive,) because the evenings in San Miguel are lovely and the walk is completely safe. An added bonus to the location is Muro, a cafe located 10 minutes uphill, which is the best place in San Miguel for breakfast and lunch.

The true highlight of the casa is on the inside. It very much felt like we were staying at the home of a thoughtful, good friend. The artwork is lovely and interesting, the furnishings tasteful and in excellent condition. The tile work in the bathrooms is beautiful, and there are so many special touches to make one feel welcome and cared for.

I would recommend Casa Oasis with out reservation to anyone who is searching for the combination of being close enough to the center to take complete advantage of it, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. We will definitely be back.

Gorgeous house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully well-appointed, clean and comfortable house with all the amenities, in a beautiful, quiet enclosed garden setting. Walked everywhere - only 10-15 minutes to Jardin. Owner, maid and property manager all very lovely, responsive to our needs, and helpful. Highly recommended!

Perfection in a Perfect Town

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to San Miguel de Allende, and our 5th different rental. This unit was absolutely flawless. The interior decorating, furniture, fixtures, bedding, cookware, internet/TV, and floor plan was first class and very well maintained. The property grounds were well landscaped, quiet, and serene. This owner obviously takes pride in her property and the comfort of her guests. While the property is roughly a 20 minute walk to the Jardin, the walk is flat, safe and interesting. If you don't want the exercise, a $3 cab ride is at your disposal. No surprises or issues. I highly recommend this unit and location.

Beautiful, serene oasis in San Miguel

  • 4 of 5

Casa Oasis reflects much of the charm of old style Mexican buildings with brick ceilings, outdoor balconies and patios, and tile floors. We especially enjoyed being within Centro yet able to come back to a quiet oasis. This casa sits within a big courtyard with fig trees, orange trees and so many other plants. Although there are many nearby restaurants, we often stayed home and found the kitchen had all we needed to make dinner - even a key lime pie. Thank you for a lovely stay in San Miguel

San Miguel is the artistic and cultural center of Mexico. It is sophisticated but still filled with Mexican charm. There is a enormous variety of live music, theatre, films, dance and an unending supply of art galleries to browse. Because of the long standing international community for restaurant scene is excellent from fine dining to cute little taco stands,

We are very close to the Fabrica Auroura, an outstanding art center housed in an old textile factory. Several good restaurants are just minutes from our home.

Ventannas golf and country club is nearby as well.
